Director Carl Franklin

NPR's Scott Simon talks with director Carl Franklin about his new film Out of Time, which opens October 3. The whodunit film, set in a steamy South Florida community, stars Denzel Washington as a police chief trying to unravel a murder mystery -- a murder where Washington's character is being set up at the suspect.

Franklin worked with Washington in the critically acclaimed 1995 film Devil in a Blue Dress. Franklin wrote the screenplay for the film, based on a Walter Mosley novel. He is also the director of the cult classic One False Move. Prior to becoming a director, Franklin was an actor, appearing in roles as diverse as Capt. Crane in The A Team and the character Fletcher in his own movie, Full Fathom Five.
